Alvaro Siza – Conscious Inspiration 3

Posted in buildings, public buildings with tags , , , , , on August 26, 2010 by eliinbar

Alvaro Siza is in my opinion one of the most talented architects who are implementing the principles of conscious inspiration
Here are three examples :

1.

Franz Holzhammer Architect_Postamt am Goetheplatz_ Munchen_ 1031-32

Alvaro Siza Architect _ Schlesisches Tor- public housing block _ Berlin_ 1980

2.

Hans Scharoun Architect _ Workers Collective Hostel _ Germany _ 1928-29

Alvaro Siza Architect _ Banco Borgers _ Porto _1980

3.

Louis Kahn Architect _ First Unitarian Church _ Rochester _N.Y, _ 1959-69

Alvaro Siza Architect _ Portugal Pavilion Expo 1998 _ Lisbon _ Portugal _ 1998

Louis Kahn & Alvaro Siza – Is this “Conscious Inspiration” ?
